Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are some typical applications for this imagery?
​1. Include an aerial in a LoopNet listing.

5. Place the pictures into your printed marketing materials.
6. Have Kinkos put a photo on poster board to hang on a wall.

Q: How can I label the pictures, for example outline the subject property?
A: The imagery ships with a photo editor called FastStone.  

     Or use an editor you're already familiar with, such as PhotoShop.

Q: How is this imagery better than what's available online for free?  
     Google imagery works just fine for us.

A: The imagery available on Bing, Google, and other places is great imagery, and there are without doubt countless applications for which it is well suited. One thing vertical imagery lacks, however, is "wow" factor. When marketing a commercial property, vertical imagery will never be able to compete with oblique aerials when it comes to presenting the site in an interesting, natural, and attention-grabbing manner.  It's all about the presentation.

Q: Are there restrictions on how I can use the imagery?
A: You may use the imagery however you need to. We ask that you not re-sell the imagery.

Q: In what format are the pictures?

A: The imagery comes to you in eight-megapixel JPEG format.

Q: How soon can we expect delivery?
A: Your flash drive will arrive within five days from the date of purchase.   In addition, you will receive a link to an ftp site, where you will have immediate access to the imagery.  You can expect to receive this link within one business day, although ten minutes is more typical.
